Tips To Maximize Your Solar Savings This Summer.

Optimize Energy Usage During Sunny Hours.

While it is true that solar panels store energy to use during the evenings and less sunny days, solar panels perform most efficiently during the times they are exposed to the most sunlight. If you can perform your most energy intensive activities during the most sunny times of the day, you will maximize your solar panel’s efficiency.

Try Using Appliances at Different times of the day.

The more appliances you run at one time, the more energy is consumed. Instead of washing your clothes, doing your dishes, and running the vacuum all at the same time, try spreading out the usage throughout the day. Do a load of dishes first. Once the dishwasher is done, then put the clothes in the washer and dryer. Your solar energy will be used more optimally, and your savings will be greater by finding a way to offset your appliance usage. We don’t want to tell you how to do your chores, but these are some helpful ways to maximize those beautiful solar panels.

Insulate Your Home to Trap Cold Air.

Good insulation means good air flow and containment. The summer gets hot, and you want your precious cold air from your air conditioning to stay in your home. If air is leaking out from poor insulation, that means your air conditioner has to work harder and use more energy. Put less strain on your solar panels and your energy bill by making sure you have good insulation.

Perovskite Solar Could Soon Combine With, Or Replace Silicon Cells

In late March, a $128 million initiative was launched to improve the costs of solar power. “A significant chunk of the money went to research into materials named after an obscure 19th-century Russian geologist and nobleman: Lev Perovski,” wrote Tom Metcalfe of NBC News. Scientists are on the cusp of discovering a better, more efficient photovoltaic solar cell. It is almost daily that new innovations and technologies are introduced within the solar energy market. Scientists are working on a new solar cell made from a type of crystallized mineral: Perovskite Perovskite could revolutionize solar cells by making it more efficient.
